The Gowind "Combat" for Malaysia could almost be considered as a full fledged Frigate because of its length announced at 111 meters and displacement of about 3,000 tons.

Integrated with SETIS, a combat system derived from FREMM, Gowind Combat Corvettes are true light frigates: They can tackle air, surface and submarine threats. The shock-resistant platform (built according to military standards), the small radar cross-section together with an excellent acoustic signature make it a high-performance surface combatant.
